U.S. Marshal Hopalong Cassidy is called when a town becomes overrun with bad guys. Disguised as a member of a medicine show, Hoppy discovers that the ringleader is none other than sweet li'l ol' Ma Burton.
Ghost Town is a mediocre independently produced western for United Artists with a cast of B picture names and competent character actors, all of whom have done considerably better.
The passengers of a stagecoach plus some others whom they've come across, crossing the plains have to seek refuge in a ghost town to escape attacking Cheyenne and Arapahoe Indians. Generally these are a pretty scurvy lot, in fact if the Indians do wind up killing them all, it won't be any great loss to civilization.
They've even got an Arapahoe Chief in their number who his tribe wants back real bad.
Best of the group are miners John Smith and William Phipps. Worst of them is Kent Taylor, one real bottom feeding human being. Still you don't wind up caring whether any of them make it out.
This western was doing the bottom of double features back in 1956 while the audience impatiently waited for the main feature to play. It would have to be better than Ghost Town.
